Report: Microsoft's foldable tablet to focus on note-taking, may be released in 2018

A lot of ink has been spilled in the topic of Microsoft’s spectacular failure in the smartphone realm, though one would imagine such musings would stop now that Windows 10 Mobile is pretty much officially dead. And yet, there’s that one rumor that has simply refused to die: the one about the foldable Surface device that’s been in development seemingly forever.

But if a new report from Windows Central is to be believed, the reason as to why it persists is simple: Microsoft is actually working on such a prototype. Commonly referred to as “Andromeda” (though …

Official: There will be no Android 8.0 Oreo updates for NVIDIA Shield Tablet and Tablet K1

Nvidia probably thinks there aren’t enough Shield Tablet or Tablet K1 units out there to worth pouring some resources into upgrading them to Android 8.0 Oreo. Or maybe, the fact that both tablets were launched more than two years ago weighed heavily on Nvidia’s decision.

Either way, the fact remains that Nvidia Shield Tablet and Tablet K1 will not be getting Android Oreo updates. On the bright side, Nvidia confirmed that the Shield Tablet K1 will receive another important update based on Android Nougat.

Most smartphone companies are making sure that their …

Meet WaterPlay, Honor's new tablet featuring IP67 waterproof rating, mid-range specs

It looks like Honor 7X was not the only device unveiled by the Chinese company earlier today. A new Android tablet that goes by the name WaterPlay was introduced by Honor alongside its mid-range smartphone.

While this isn’t Honor’s first tablet, it might be one of the few that comes with water resistance. As the name suggests, Honor WaterPlay is an IP67-certified tablet, but that’s not the only selling point of the slate.

Honor announced the WaterPlay features stereo speakers with 3D audio technology backed by Harman Kardon. Furthermore, the physical home …

Sailfish X for Sony Xperia X now available for purchase for Jolla Tablet backers

If you own a Sony Xperia X smartphone and have been dying to install Sailfish OS on it, you’ll be happy to know that the mobile platform will soon be widely available for purchase. Dubbed Sailfish X, the OS can be had for €49.90, and for the time being it’s only compatible with the Xperia X.

Sailfish X is not a slightly different variation of Android, it’s a completely different OS built by Jolla, the Finnish company behind the tablet with the same name. That’s probably one of the reasons it doesn’t come for free, so if you want to burn €50 on a new OS for your …

Have a better look at Microsoft's canceled Lumia 2020 tablet

Microsoft, probably like many other companies, canceled quite a few hardware products over the years. After the Redmond acquired Nokia’s mobile phone division, there was much excitement among Microsoft fans. Such a well-known smartphone brand backed by an equally solid name couldn’t fail, right?

Unfortunately, these days Windows Phone doesn’t mean much in terms of market share. Microsoft got rid of Nokia’s smartphone business and canceled a few products while at it.

One of these projects that never saw the light of day, the Nokia Lumia 2020 was supposed to …

New Amazon Fire HD 10 tablet comes with Alexa hands-free, costs as low as $149


Amazon just announced a brand new Fire HD 10 tablet that replaces
the similarly-named model released back in 2015. Just like all of Amazon’s
tablets, the new Fire HD 10 is aimed at users on a budget, so it doesn’t offer
high-end features. Still, the device stands out by being the very first Fire
tablet to come with Amazon Alexa voice integration – this way, you’ll be able to
ask Alexa to perform various tasks for you, including pausing videos, play
music, read audiobooks, show weather reports, and so on.

 

The Fire HD 10 2017 sports a 10.1-inch display with 1920 x
